Make sure you watch this video till the end because I will be sharing with you a lot of secrets that I’ve learned of doing affiliate marketing for over seven years.
Well who am I to even teach you affiliate marketing, right? Well I have been doing affiliate marketing for over seven years now, and I have a portfolio of over 11+ websites, apart from that I also do paid consulting, I’m a speaker and a trainer.
And now comes the big question, what is affiliate marketing? In affiliate marketing, three parties are involved. There’s a merchant or an affiliate network, let’s consider it to be Amazon. Then there will be you, as an affiliate. Where you'll be promoting the products of the merchant through a special affiliate link. So, when someone purchases a product through your affiliate link, you get a commission, that is, you make money.
Now in my affiliate marketing blog series, I’ll show you step-by-step on how to sign up to the affiliate network, how to generate your links, how to promote these links to thousands of people for free and then make money from your links.
Almost all popular companies use affiliate marketing to drive customers. Be it Amazon, Flipkart, Ola, Uber, Swiggy, FoodPanda, Zomato- almost all popular companies are doing it.
But the important question is, how affiliate marketing will help you. Well the most important benefit is certainly online earning on autopilot. Today my websites are driving free traffic every month from Google and making me affiliate commission.
So now let’s talk about who can learn affiliate marketing. You don’t need any special qualifications, you don’t need any technical background. All you need is one laptop, or a computer, and an internet connection. This is all you need.
The best part about affiliate marketing is that you are making money from the comfort of your home. There is no age limit, no massive course fee, only your willingness to learn, and your willingness to earn money online.
I’m friends with people who are making $100,000 per month to $300,000 per month from affiliate marketing.
So now let’s talk about what is the best way to learn affiliate marketing. Well when I started there was no one to guide me. No one to tell me the best tips, tricks, tools or strategies that actually work. Well lucky for you, I’ll be teaching you and guiding you in every step. You need a guide, a person who has made the mistakes, so that you don’t repeat those mistakes.
So now let’s mention which affiliate network to specialise in . There are thousands of affiliate networks in the market. I myself use 50+ affiliate networks to form money for my affiliate websites.
So which one should you choose? While there are more complicated ones like Clickbank and the Commission Junction, where you need the knowledge of advanced digital marketing in order to make money. This is because the competition is just way to high.
For beginners, who are just starting out, the one i like to recommend is Amazon Associate. It’s easy to run and promote and now I’ll be showing you why you should be focusing only on Amazon.in. Amazon is the world’s biggest ecommerce website. Amazon.com is driving more than 2.5B visitors per month. Amazon India or Amazon.in is driving quite 360M people per month.
The best part is that each experienced affiliate marketer is merely targeting Amazon.com within the US market. But there’s usually zero competition in Amazon India. So, making money from an Indian Amazon associate account is a hundred times easier than promoting in Amazon.com on the US market.
Apart from this, there is many other reasons why you should join the Amazon affiliate network. Once you promote your Amazon affiliate link the cookie period is for twenty-four hours. So, regardless of the customer finishes up purchasing within the next 24 hours, you'll be getting the commission for that.
The second good point is that you will be getting paid the affiliate commission for the entire cart. So, let’s say you refer someone to buy a t-shirt. But the person ends up buying a jean, a cap and the t-shirt as well. You will be getting the affiliate commission for the whole cart value and not just the merchandise that you simply recommend. This is the simplest part about the Amazon affiliate link.
And since Amazon has such a lot data and optimization, majority of the people find yourself buying numerous other products and not just the merchandise you recommend. You can see in the image on the screen that majority of the products that I sold are not the products that I was promoting but the other products that people purchased when I referred them and I still got the commission.
The third benefit is the Amazon brand. Amazon is now one of the biggest ecommerce websites in India. They spend millions in advertising and now everyone knows about Amazon. So, there’s a trust from the consumers from Amazon, so the conversion rate of people buying from Amazon is very high.
This also helps in getting more sales and hence, making more affiliate commissions. I am getting a massive 3.5% conversion rate. So, every hundred people I ask Amazon, almost 3 – 4 people find yourself buying the products. So that’s just amazing.
So now let’s talk about how can you make money from affiliate marketing. The easy answer is creating a website and scale it. Don’t worry, I won’t just tell you this and end the blog, in our next lesson of our affiliate marketing playlist, I will tell you how to select a profitable niche.
